My sincerest condolences to your family for the loss of a wonderful man.
Mikey and I were cube mates at Acosta for a few years and he gave me my first married nickname "Kleebs". Can still hear him over the cube wall "Kleebs" is it a good day to bad one. I would always told him to soon to tell, but will let you know. He would proceed with " got some hooch in my desk when the tides turn". Then we would share a much needed laugh.
He will be missed greatly and everytime I think of someone "trying" to say my last will always think of Mike and his "Kleebs".
Rest in peace my friend.

Dear Sheila, I am so saddened to hear of Mike's death. What an incredible cousin to have in the "Taylor family". From the first time I remember being around him you always knew there was going to be a good time with lots of laughs if Mike was at a family gathering. My thoughts and prayers are with you and with the family. We were all so blessed to have Mike in our lives.
Many blessings, Mary Alice

So sorry Sheila for your loss! I will truly miss Uncle Mike. He was such a kind and fun person. No matter what the situation was Uncle Mike could always enlighten the moment. I will miss him singing Happy Birthday to me over the phone, since he was in California and I was in Seattle. Heaven get ready for his jokes and fun character!

We shared many memorable events with Mike and Sheila: their wedding, birthdays, house warmings, work-related events (Chinese New Year parade) and Maui. We will miss his unique humor, and kind heart.

I worked with Mike at Acosta for about 5 years, he was so funny and a wonderful presence around the office. I was fortunate enough to get to ride with him during a ‘Vet to Val’s’ trip and it was such a fun experience.

He will be greatly missed!

Very saddened to hear of Mike's passing.

I had known Mike since our Bromar days in Pleasanton. He brought a light to the office everyday that was golden. His sense of humor and love for his family made us all realize this man knew how to live life to the fullest. His announcements over the intercom on Friday's: "This is the refrigerator speaking" Lol. Or how he got to the office first to make everyone's coffee was just his way of making our work environment a great place to be. He sat in the cubicle next to mine and after his hip surgery would say: "Janie, I may need a boost!". He will be greatly missed.
Stay gold Mike, stay gold.
